the wealthy folks at the tax breaks. it wasn't tied to inflation, now it's getting the middle class. steve and alexander, virginia commuter next. >> caller: i have had to be in the minority that thinks the amt is a good thing because it arbitrarily raises the taxes on folks and government programs have to be paid for. i'm really intrigued with mr. buckley's statement that there is going to be chaos if the amt is permitted to go forward or that it's not patched in 2012. what chaos is going to happen? people will have to pay more taxes and it's not as if everyone is sitting around their tax offer right now, anticipating what their taxes are going to be. it's basically individuals will be hit with a tax bill, which is going to be calculated and quite frankly more simplified form than the standard tax law. >> host: professor buckley. >> guest: when i say chaos, i am referring to two things. first, the irs has done all of its internal programming based on the assumption that there would be an amt patch enacted by the end of the year. that would be a fairly large undertaking by the irs to change

that he had not proved -- quote -- "certainty of hopelessness." whitener's lawyer, steve stanton of granite city, said of the case -- quote -- "i didn't even have the client pay me. in all the cases in 30 years of bankruptcy work, i came away with about the worst taste in my mouth that i've ever had." mr. president, not only is it almost impossible to prove the hardship required by the bruner test. most student borrowers aren't even able to afford to try. that's because debtors have to bring a separate court case in addition to the bankruptcy case in order to seek this exception. that means paying a lawyer for another case and likely for an appeal. how can it be that the deck is so stacked against students? those who borrowed money to go through school? how can certainty of hopelessness be the standard of borrowers to obtain any relief in bankruptcy court? this hearkens back to the debtor's prisons of europe and english glands. charles dickens would have a ball with this standard. congress needs to address this. right now there's $150 billion in outstanding private student loan d
